Photographic Workshop in Fez

Following the successful photographic workshop earlier this year, 1000 Words Photography will be holding another event in Fez with acclaimed Swedish photographer Anders Petersen from 27 April to 1 May. They are calling for both professional and amateur photographers to submit entries for this rare and challenging experience.

The importance and achievements of Swedish photographer, Anders Petersen, cannot be overestimated. As a social realist he has had a significant influence on a bitter/sweet attitude that strives towards a `subjective documentary´ approach to photography. Taught by Christer Strömholm in the 1960s, Anders has continued and expanded the necessity for photographers to embark on personal diaries of the life, places and people that they experience. He has published more than 20 photobooks from the highly regarded and classic, Café Lehmitz (1978) to the more recent collaboration with JH Engström with From Back Home (2009). He is represented by Galerie VU in Paris, Marvelli Gallery in New York, Gun Gallery in Stockholm and Rat Hole Gallery in Tokyo.
